History Club President David Conway oversaw the initiation ceremony, where Rebekah Anderson, Elizabeth Fletcher, Megan Meyerhoff, Shelby Pace, Steven Pique, and Kaylee Shackleford became new members.

The club also discussed plans for the 2011-2012 school year. President David mentioned dates for the fall pizza party and the spring history department awards banquet, and there was a brief discussion about possible banquet speakers. The club was also invited to participate in the annual Phi Alpha Theta/History Department community service project scheduled for November 1 at the historic Bemis Museum/Theater. Twenty-two people attended the meeting, and refreshments were served for everyone to enjoy.
